Funding Opportunity: Ocean Acidification Education Minigrants

Proposals due February 18th, 2022

The Ocean Acidification Program education mini-grant initiative, is a competitively based program that supports coastal and ocean acidification education programs that are responsive to the goals of the NOAA Ocean Acidification Education Implementation Plan and 2021-2040 NOAA Education Strategic Plan. Priority goals include engaging diverse audiences in ocean acidification education and outreach, matching ocean acidification communication needs with existing research, education and outreach activities, while developing innovative approaches for community involvement. These goals are part of NOAA's efforts to increase Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility (DEI&A as defined in this executive order) in ocean literacy, stewardship, and workforce development, particularly in inland and underserved communities.

Proposals are due 11:59pm ET on February 18, 2022. Formal Notice of Funding Opportunity on grants.gov

TRACKING OCEAN ACIDIFICATION IN PUERTO RICO: A VIDEO JOURNEY

TRACKING OCEAN ACIDIFICATION IN PUERTO RICO: A VIDEO JOURNEY

January 20th, 2021

Puerto Rico is home to vibrant coral reef ecosystems that support a diversity of marine life and livelihoods. Join Melissa Melendez, University of Hawai'i Manoa and Lisamarie Carrubba, NOAA Fisheries' Office of Protected Resources, as they  share our journey in creating Spanish-language videos (with English subtitles) about ocean acidification, its causes, consequences, research and possible solutions for the Puerto Rican public and island visitors. The video invites viewers to get involved in community actions that reduce other stressors to marine organisms and increase their resilience to the effects of ocean acidification. A full length and short video (highlighting key messages) were created in collaboration with a number of NOAA and non-NOAA partners, including the University of Puerto Rico and Paradise SCUBA and Snorkeling Center, and produced by a local videographer, Efra Visuals.

Undergraduate Research Internship Opportunities

Mook Sea Farm & SEANET

Two ocean acidification-related undergraduate research internship opportunities are avaiable this summer at Mook Sea Farm in Walpole, ME supported by SEANET.  These opportunities are open to undergraduate students from or attending university in Maine.

The Aquaculture in changing waters: Impacts of ocean acidification on juvenile oysters opportunity is directly related to ocean acidification and the aquaculture industry.  The second internship, Environmental influence on larval bivalve settlement success, will consider the effects of several environmental variables, including pCO2, pH, and saturation state, on larval bivalve settlement in a field study.

Applications will be reviewed beginning February 18. 2019. Please direct questions to me, Meredith White, meredith.megan.white@gmail.com.
